Supsend/resume failure on Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600

Description of Problem:
Suspend + resume fails on Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 with Red Hat Linux
7.2; it worked fine with version 7.1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in as root
2. /etc/init.d/netfs stop
3. apm -s
4. Press power/suspend/resume button to resume
The following message appears:
WARNING: RESUME FAILURE.
PRESS ANY KEY TO CONTINUE
The system boots upon pressing a key.
Also, LED status after suspending doesn't look quite right to me
System default /etc/sysconfig/apmd used. The problem does not occur if some
time consuming operation, like "netfs stop", takes place during suspend
ext3 file system is being used.
Created attachment 37742 [details]
Custom APM script; workaround for problem
Workaround: Install attached script as /etc/sysconfig/apm-scripts/apmcontinue
The drawback is that this slows down suspend process, sometimes unnecessarily;
the additional wait is really only necessary if one or more sleep commands
weren't already executed, e.g. as a part of netfs shutdown.
The joys of broken BIOSes...
About 80% of the current apmscript is workarounds for broken BIOSes, guess
adding one more won't hurt.
Workaround (DELAYSUSPEND option in /etc/sysconfig/apmd) added in -36.
